Once Upon a Time Season 2 Spoiler: Is Neal’s Fiancée Tamara Wendy From Peter Pan?
We know Once Upon a Time is planning a trip to “another land” for the Season 2 finale, and based on the fact we know the titles of the two-part season finale (“Second Star to the Right” and “Straight On Til Morning”), we can safely assume Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and Co. are headed to Neverland. Many fans have even speculated Neal/Baelfire is Peter Pan himself. (However, we’re more inclined to suggest Neal is actually a Lost Boy.) Neal told Emma that our world wasn’t his first destination after leaving Fairytale Land. If Neal really did venture into Neverland, could his fiancée Tamara also be a Peter Pan character? Thanks to this spoiler-y new info from TVLine, we can safely assume Tamara is some sort of fairytale character.
When asked if Tamara would play a role in future OUAT episodes, TVLine’s Matt Mitovich responded, “Yes — thoughprobably not in quite the way you expect.” Series co-creator Eddy Kitsis hinted that “Tamara’s not going anywhere anytime soon… We’re very excited for the audience to see what she’s all about.”
It definitely sounds like Tamara is some sort of fairytale character, and since we know how OUAT likes to take classic characters and spin them, we think Tamara could be Peter Pan’s Wendy. In the classic fairytale, Wendy leaves Peter and Neverland, so it’s not too hard to imagine that Wendy left with Neal.
Of course, Tamara could also be another classic Peter Pan character: Tinker Bell! That would definitely be an unconventional spin on a classic character. Speaking of the unconventional, Tamara could also be Peter Pan — hey, in the OUAT universe Jack the giant slayer was a female! However, basedon what Robert Carlyle (Rumple) recently told us at PaleyFest — ”It's going to be a kid that plays [Peter Pan]. So it's not going to be an older character” — we think that theory is a little far-fetched.
